Cocoa Mint Lip Balm


    Date : 1999-10-07

    My husband and I go through a lot of lip balm during the fall and the petroleum-based ones seem to dry out our lips in the long run. This is our favorite lip smacker, enriched with both shea butter, and regular cocoa butter. Enjoy

    Ingredients:

      .25 ounces beeswax
      .33 ounces shea butter, refined
      .33 ounces regular cocoa butter
      .40 ounces sweet almond oil
      2 mL Vitamin E Acetate
      10 drops peppermint essential oil

    Instructions:

    Weigh all ingredients, then melt the oils and beeswax in microwave. Add the essential oil and pour into prepared containers. Let them cool, then cap. This quantity fills 4 (MMS) lip balm tubes and 3 (MMS) lip balm jars, with just enough remaining for your anxious family members to sample.
